The Business in Energy - Empowering Your Business

The Business in Energy is an interactive workshop that describes a business' electricity production options in Southern Africa. We show how your business can access these new opportunities with a self-generation profile. Roof-top solar photovoltaic power and independent power producers are being encouraged. And, these offer ways around the crippling, above-inflation tariff increases coupling the intermittent power-interruptions. 

You will learn ways to manage your energy needs to help sustain, and even grow, your own business!

The Business in Energy Workshop helps to answer pertinent questions like:

  • Where do we begin to access the emerging energy sector opportunities?
  • Why has the price for renewable energy coming down so rapidly?
  • What triggers the on-going, above-inflation electricity tariff increases?
  • How does South Africa currently produce electricity?
  • How do these factors impact our business’ profitability?
  • What about solar power generation for my business? And feed-in tariffs?
  • Is there financing for my self-generation project?

Who should participate:  Business owners; managing directors; financial directors; facility managers; architects; business advisors; insurance advisors; business funders; cold-storage industry; electrical engineers; auditors; project managers; agro-processing; food manufacturers; entrepreneurs and other forward-thinking, environmental students and individuals

Come discover the ways to keep your lights on!
